Remaining on legacy Linux distributions can lead to additional security risks as time goes on, and migrating to a newer and better supported distribution can be a very difficult endeavor for most administrators. In this episode, Jay and Joao are joined by Jack from AlmaLinux, and we talk about ELevate – a tool that can be used to migrate from a distribution in the Enterprise Linux family to another Enterprise Linux distribution. This helps alleviate some of the burden of distro migration, and as a community project it’s also a great project to get started with contributing to an open-source project.
AlmaLinux ELevate is a brand-new tool that makes it easy to move from RHEL 7.x and its derivatives, to any version 8.x related distribution of your choice (AlmaLinux, CentOS, Rocky Linux and etc). This tool is being developed with the open-source mindset at its core, and in this video, Jay chats with Jack from AlmaLinux about this awesome project.
